Jones CreekFair5/8 Trail Reporter states: Trail is in great shape until you hit snow and mud about 3.6 miles in (close to the meadow at the top). Looks like some mountain bikers or dirt bikers have made rogue cutoffs to "skip" muddy sections this year. Remember rules and etiquette.

Dry ForkGoodTrailReporterStates: Really pretty good conditions except for the 3 or so usual muddy spots. This photo is the one w armor to try and help give a path. Doesn't help right now and the go-around to the right is just as deep and muddy. Few creek crossings as well, but all kept my bike pretty clean.

Thank you whoever went out and cleared all those trees. That was a lot of work and we appreciated it!
